My wandering days grew increasingly empty

1
My wandering days grew increasingly empty
As I searched for the way,
Just to fill this gap inside me—
Found my seeking vain.
Though all this dark earth would convince me
    life’s worthwhile,
Inside all my mirth
Was a cry for something real.
Don’t you lie to me, world!
  For my heart tells me different
When I hear of contentment
Deep within a lack knew better
  Why not be honest, world.
2
A flood of strong doubt as I heard the old story
Of a man they called Lord;
Yet my heart ne’er ceased to wonder,
Is He really Lord?
A search in His Word found my hardened
    heart softened,
And earth’s vanities faded.
In the brightness of His presence
Jesus came into me.
  Now we’re always together
Growing into God’s fullness.
O Lord Jesus, how I love You!
  You brought life into me.

O Lord, we are so empty without You. Many people wander in this earth searching for You but hallelujah that we have found You! Lord, You are so honest and so true. How can I not love such a One, for you brought life and meaning into me! Lord Jesus, I love You.

And earth’s vanities faded.

I enjoy that we are wandering in the dessert because of the lies of the world but the Lords story helps us to find a path, not to wander. The Lord is just waiting for us just around the corner. Amen PRAISE THE LORD!

Our new search! If you have been raised to life along with Christ, seek with your hearts things above and focus your attention on things up there, not on things on earth.

So put to death wicked cravings--and (Col. 3:16) sing to the Lord with grateful hearts.
